From Tax Foundation, November 3, 2021
Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives have advanced legislation containing the tax elements of President Biden’s new Build Back Better framework. Here are the updated details and analysis:
According to our new analysis using the Tax Foundation General Equilibrium Model, the major tax provisions in the House Build Back Better plan would:
Result in a net revenue increase of about $768 billion
Reduce long-run economic output by nearly 0.4 percent
Eliminate about 103,000 full-time equivalent jobs
Reduce average after-tax incomes for the top 80 percent of taxpayers
Under the bill, the average top tax rate on personal income would reach 57.4 percent, giving the U.S. the highest rate in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
All 50 states plus the District of Colombia would have top tax rates on personal income exceeding 50 percent.
